Make a Donation

Our vision is to create a long term future for the world’s wild cat species. But we need your help!

 

Whether assisting with our educational programs, conservation breeding programs or our ongoing research activities within Australia and abroad, your donation will go a long way to help us achieving our goals.

Your contribution, however big or small, makes a world of difference!

 

Our mission:

  • To ensure a future for the world’s 40 wild cat species and their dwindling habitat.

 

  • To protect, study and conserve many of the smaller wild cat species.

 

  • To create awareness, while developing and strengthening our conservation breeding and research activities.

 

Over 90% of all funds raised by our foundation go directly back to our core purpose. No other not for profit organisation in Australia goes close to those sort of numbers.

Larger charities often spend money on carrying out their charitable purpose, hosting large flashy events, on administration and operational costs. We are a small lean team and are 100% transparent to our donors and supporters.
